Aren't GTK+ and the openmoko libs under the LGPL? According to the wiki
openmoko supports development of commercial software. I'm for an open
OS, and I think that's a good place for the GPL. That way no one
develops a closed source version of openmoko with AT&T specific
binaries, or whatever. But I'm planning on running skype on my GTA02
one day, so I don't really take the 100% open source position.
